The UCSF Chancellor’s Circle

The Chancellor’s Circle is a community of like-minded people who are deeply connected to UCSF’s core mission of advancing health worldwide.

Chancellor’s Circle members are asked to make an annual gift starting at $10,000 to the UCSF Chancellor’s Circle Fund, an unrestricted fund the chancellor uses for the university’s most pressing needs. Through these annual contributions, Chancellor’s Circle members empower UCSF to respond to urgent health care needs, fuel investigations on the forefront of bioscience, and sustain opportunities for the most exceptional social justice-minded students and faculty members. Circle members learn firsthand about astonishing innovations in health science at virtual events and discussions throughout the year. Thank you for partnering with us to shape the future of health care.
